Dr. Sam Amadi.

A former Executive Chairman of the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC), Dr. Sam Amadi, has declined the offer to serve as the Director of Research for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Presidential Campaign Council.

Sam Amadi expressed his rejection in a letter he conveyed to Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State, who doubles as the Director General of the campaign council, explaining that he is non-partisan and that his rejection of the appointment is not a vote of no confidence on PDP.

In a statement he issued, Amadi explained that such an appointment would lead to a conflict of interest and cannot participate in such a role, therefore his desire to humbly decline the appointment and hereby abstain from participating in such a role.

He says, “The decision to decline the offer has stemmed from the conflicts of interest emanating from various responsibilities in which I act as a leader of different platforms where political neutrality and objectivity are required of me and for some years, I have been an analyst on Arise News, which I consider one of the most strategic institutions for national development and sane deliberative democracy through analytical news reporting.

“Therefore, my role in that reputable media platform also requires non-partisanship, even as I am free to express my opinions.”
